To the best of my knowledge, I have made yet another simple comic. It's about the Franco - Prussian war from 1870 to 1871.



Inb4 critics tell me X never happened and Y is corrupting history








SPOILERS: THE SECOND FRENCH EMPIRE DIES AND THE GERMAN EMPIRE IS CREATED

I love Germany's reaction to France Slapping him, It's just so funny. XD

It's fairly accurate, with one big thing missing: Bismarck was actively hoping and preparing for a war with France, and even took steps to provoke the French government into a declaration of hostilities (specifically, altering the text of the King of Prussia's message to him in order to inflame tensions).

Speaking of Franco, I'd be curious to see your take on Francoist Spain. I was interested to see that Spain wasn't covered as one of the neutral nations of WWII...but, whatever. I'm a proud American. Europe is kind of...meh.

Of course, you're not making these anymore, but still- out of curiosity, if you did suddenly decide to make another one, which war would you cover?

I'd cover the Anglo-Zanzibar war because it lasted 40 minutes and I could cover it in a single panel instead of 6 pages

You seem very bitter about the whole thing.

They're just okay. I would've taken them down if I really hated them.

Whenever I read Germany saying "Deutschland uber alles!", the German national anthem pops into my head.
Also, the line "Hey, don't run away from wars you started, France" is hilarious. To me, at least.
